So, ‘Merica is on episode 5 of Downton Abbey but I’ve already watched up through Episode 9. (Thank you Apple TV.)
Does anyone want to hear the spoilers?
Come on. I NEED TO TALK ABOUT THIS.
Is anyone else watching this PBS masterpiece? I LOVE THIS SHOW. And I will say that Edith is a contender for my “Favorite Fancy Character from the Show” award.
Speaking of masterpieces.
When I saw that there was an A&E T.V. show called “Wahlburgers” starring Marky Mark (sans the Funky Bunch), Donnie Wahlberg (sans the rest of the New Kids) and his family, of course I had to DVR it.
So when it came time for the screening of the premiere and the second episode, I found myself 2/3 of the way into the 90-minute time committment thinking, “Eh.”
Ya’ll, I believe this is a classic case of the ‘ole bait and switch.
|(I was hard pressed to find a shirt of “Marky Mark” with his shirt on. Note the overalls.)|
BAIT: Mark Wahlberg and Donnie Wahlberg on a TV SHOW in 2014.
SWITCH: An other Wahlberg brother (Paul) and their Mother actually being the main characters.
I mean, a show about a hamburger restaurant isn’t all that exciting. I was hoping for Entourage II, Boston-style complete with an Ari and a Lloyd.
This is like the inside-working of a high-end mash-up of Chipotle and Wendy’s with an occasional visit from Dave Thomas and Wendy.
I’m slightly disappointed but I’ll keep recording it.
I like the bait. (Wink, wink.)
